Reading for Meaning with Read Naturally Live

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

Read Naturally combines three research-based strategies (teacher modeling, repeated reading, and progress monitoring) into one powerful strategy that has accelerated the reading development of Title I, special education, ELL, and mainstream students nationwide for over 20 years. Read Naturally supports vocabulary development and promotes comprehension as students work through each step of the strategy, using non-fiction stories, to improve reading fluency. Educators can easily differentiate instruction to meet a wide range of instructional needs by individually placing each student at an appropriate level and goal.

The presentation includes an explanation of the role fluency plays in overall reading proficiency and the research-based strategies to develop fluency in beginning and struggling readers. For this presentation, the Read Naturally strategy is demonstrated using Read Live, Read Naturally’s web-based software, but the three strategies of teacher modeling, repeated reading, and progress monitoring can be applied to materials already found in many educators’ classrooms.

The strategy was originally piloted in Minneapolis Public Schools, and studies confirm the effectiveness of this approach to reading intervention.
